He’s a puppy! Reddish fur, white face. Half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, half poodle.

Which is the best name?

We can't possibly decide without a cute puppy photo wink

gallicgirl Fri 20-Oct-17 13:17:42

Thank Christ for that!

Zeus I think.

Chaffinch4 Fri 20-Oct-17 13:23:14

Albus. Glad it isn't a baby...

Montacute Fri 20-Oct-17 13:25:34

Ziggy. For sure.

When you step barefoot in a puddle of cold puppy wee during the night it will be much more satisfying to say 'oh zi-GGY,' than 'Zeus'. You need that second syllable for times of frustration.

And yes, where the hell is the photo??!! Upload at once please! smile

Oh thank FUCK.

I vote Ziggy. I'd cross Oakley off your list entirely, unless it's always been your life's dream to pay homage to an overpriced sunglasses brand.

Not sure Zeus is quite right for a Spaniel/Poodle cross grin

Not a fan of Oakley at all, so for me it's Albus or Ziggy. I'll go with Ziggy because I'm a big Bowie fan grin

Here he is. He’s only three weeks old. Not coming home for five weeks but the family we are getting him from are desperate for us to name him.

He looks the colour of autumn leaves to me which is why I liked Oakley (means Oak tree meadow).

Cockerpoodledoo Fri 20-Oct-17 13:47:19

Definitely looks like a Ziggy to me.

ChocolateCrunch Fri 20-Oct-17 13:51:16

Albus or Oakley! Sooo cute!

bimbambom Fri 20-Oct-17 13:52:39

Ziggy such a naughty name

danTDM Fri 20-Oct-17 13:52:53

A sweetie.

WildCherryBlossom Fri 20-Oct-17 13:55:33

Ziggy or Oakley. Doesn’t bear any resemblance to Albus Dumbledore (that might be one he could grow into) and as pp said the single syllable of Zeus doesn’t work somehow.

(Thank goodness it’s not a human baby!)

albus55 Fri 20-Oct-17 13:56:52

I have an Albus so that gets my vote and Albi is a cute nickname smile

Montacute Fri 20-Oct-17 14:02:27

Oh he’s adorable. I would love to give him a smooshy cuddle.

Doggington Fri 20-Oct-17 14:03:19

HA HA wildcherry. Its my daughter whose plumping for Albus. I pointed out the lack of any resemblemce to Dumbledore and suggested he’s more of a Weasley. But none of us are sold on a puppy called Ron!

muminthecity Fri 20-Oct-17 14:04:14

Oh my goodness, me heart just melted at the sight of him! What a little darling, quite clearly looks like a Ziggy to me smile

muminthecity Fri 20-Oct-17 14:04:55

*my heart, not me heart. I am not Danny Dyer grin

InfiniteSheldon Fri 20-Oct-17 14:05:47

Phew that was a headline and a half!!

Awwlookatmybabyspider Fri 20-Oct-17 15:04:50

OMG. He's beyond adorable. I bet you can't wait for him to join your family.
He looks like an Oakley.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Fri 20-Oct-17 15:05:42

Awwwwwww. Ron would be so cute

CalmanOnSpeeddial Fri 20-Oct-17 15:06:22

HE has to be Ziggy, he’s got a lightening strike down his face and everything.

Alittlepotofrosie Fri 20-Oct-17 15:10:35

Aww little ronnie would be cute!

Otherwise ziggy or oakley.

SweetChickadee Fri 20-Oct-17 15:12:35


Actually, Weasley is quite a good puppy name too.

of your list I like Oakley best.
